About “Sunny Day Hot Rod”

I got a great deal on this car in 2004, and drive it on nice days, it currently has about 15k miles on it and it runs and drives like it is brand new.

About “rotwiler”

2002 Camaro Z28. When I bought the Z28 I said I was going to keep it stock...ya right.. First month I was modding it. I focused more on the way the car drives than power alone. My goal is to get 400 rwhp and keep driveability close to like it was stock. I may throw small 75-100 shot of nitrous on for just in case.

 

Specs for “Sunny Day Hot Rod”

5.7L with 6 Speed manual

Specs for “rotwiler”

Currently with mods the car has right around 415-25 motor hp. This was calculated with around 15% drivetrain loss from the automatic. Still on stock springs and Bilstien shocks I have been easily pulling 1.5's 60 foot times and 7.9's 1/8th mile. Need a better tune, so 1/4 mile times vary.. Best run is 12.0, 12.2 normal.

 

Factory Options for “Sunny Day Hot Rod”

Loaded with all available options

Factory Options for “rotwiler”

All the options a z28 came with in 2002 except traction control and SS package, including T tops and factory ground fx/spoiler, leather, a/c, fog lights, steering wheel audio controls, monsoon premium audio with 6 cd changer.. Sebring Silver was brought back for the 2002 model year.
